The Miss Earth 2011 Official Candidates were presented to the Press at the poolside of Oakwood Premier in Ortigas Center. Wearing their eye-catching two-piece swimwears in colors of pink, fuchsia, yellow, orange, green and blue, the ladies paraded in the venue holding plant seedlings representing the main cause of the pageant – 2011 being the International Year of the Forests.
Particular standouts are Hasleen Kaur of India, Caroline Medina of Venezuela, Agnes Benitez of Puerto Rico, Renate Cerljen of Sweden, Driely Bennettone of Brazil and Tomoko Maeda of Japan. Miss Philippines Athena Mae Imperial is all-out in showing warm hospitality to all her co-candidates. She may be one of the shortest in the batch but always stands tall when blending her naturally cordial self with everyone.
From this point, the delegates will head to a Miss Earth caravan that will bring them around Northern Luzon for various environmental activities that should strengthen their individual resolves in protecting Mother Earth. Some of the preliminaries will also be conducted during this trip before returning to Manila for the coronation night on December 3.
